Love On Your Neck

imageNecks are so sexy. They protect important things like our upper vertebrae, thyroid, jugular vein, larynx, etc.; hold up our head; and protect nerves that carry info from our brain to the rest of our body. Despite how important they are for the normal function of our bodies, can we just appreciate their aesthetic b for a moment?  I mean, how lucky are those damn giraffes with their gargantuan yet slender necks and long, pretty eyelashes?

Necks can be a real pain too. The wrong pillow, bad posture or an unfortunate case of whiplash can cause us inordinate neck suffering. It’s important we appreciate and take good care of them as not to take them for granted.

Why not give our necks some extra lovin’ by adorning them with all the pretty things? With the comeback of chokers a la 1990s, this is the perfect time to do just that!

I mean, that gives us humans one up against those neck-y giraffes. Ha!

Sunday Funday at Winterthur Estates

This Sunday I took my kiddos to the Winterthur Museum and Garden in Delaware. Winterthur is a 1000+ acre estate which houses a 600 acre garden (including an ‘enchanted woods’ for children), du Pont Family and American antiques museum, research library and more.

It was such a wondrous place I decided to get the family membership so we can enjoy the estate all year long! Returning visitors were sure to let us know that while the estate is gorgeous in the fall we had to return for Christmastime for Yuletide at Winterthur, as well as springtime when the entire garden is in bloom.

The house-turned-museum has a striking 175 rooms covering 9 floors. It was so big I had trouble getting a picture of the entire house.

My little stud muffin. He enjoyed playing with the fall leaves and chasing squirrels!

When fall is your fave 🍂🍂🍂.

I have a kinship with trees. Wood is my spirit element, I am sure of it.

My beautiful and goofy girls.

Enjoying the sun peeking through the trees.

The grounds were so gorgeous and photo-shoot worthy, I imagined a woman or child wearing one of my headbands, posing in the Enchanted Woods or any part of the garden during springtime. I only have 2 headbands left in stock, as they sold like crazy with Day of the Dead coming up. I’ve also completely sold out of my skull earrings. Next year I will be sure to have more inventory prepared! Love the learning curve 🙂
